Vision and Mission

RIPCA Mission

The group connects the RI Peace Corps community throughout the volunteer life cycle (prospective volunteers through returned volunteers), Peace Corps staff, and other supporters to one another, to our local community, to our nation, and to our world for continued service, outreach, advocacy, and support through social events, service projects, and networking programs that embody the Third Goal and spirit of the Peace Corps of “bringing the world back home”.


RIPCA Purpose

The purpose of the organization is to build a network of Rhode Island Peace Corps alumni and friends to enable them to continue their commitment to international service and understanding through the exchange of information, materials, and technology; and to inform and educate returned Peace Corps Volunteers and the general public by means of services, projects and other activities related to the goal of Peace Corps of promoting world peace and friendship.
